Supervalu's Jewel-Osco creates demand around the 'last shipment' of Twinkies

ITASCA, Ill. — Fans of "Zombieland" take heart — should the world come to an end, the last Twinkie will be available at a Chicago-area Jewel Osco. 

Jewel-Osco, a Supervalu company, on Monday announced that beginning Tuesday morning the retailer will begin selling what are believed to be the last shipments of Hostess products. More than 20,000 boxes of Twinkies will be sold at regular price through select Chicago-area Jewel-Osco stores, the company stated. "Customers looking for Ding Dongs, Zingers and Orange Cupcakes will also be in luck."

As of Tuesday morning, 10-count box Twinkies were being auctioned for as much as $10. 

There will be no limit on how many items a customer can buy, Supervalu stated.
